The Indians have been so good, they won the AL Central sitting at home and everyone celebrated online
After beating the Royals, 8-4, on Saturday afternoon, the Indians' magic number was down to one. All they needed to be able to go party on Saturday night was for the Blue Jays to beat the Twins. Sure enough, the boys from the north -- uh, meaning those in Canada -- beat those other boys from the other north -- meaning Minnesota -- 7-2. For the first time since the '95-'99 Indians teams, Cleveland were repeat AL Central champs.
